Penarth Youth Action (PYA), the youth council for the town, is now recruiting new members from local schools and community groups.
Those aged 11-18 years, who want to make a difference in their community, are being invited to get involved with the PYA, which is a partnership project between the Vale Youth Service and the Penarth Town Council and aims to provide a platform for young people to express their views and make changes in their town.
Being part of PYA can help young people develop a variety of skills that will help them grow in confidence, learn more about local government and gain accredited qualifications that they can present on their UCAS forms and CVs.
Recently the group has been campaigning against online bullying and is working to produce a toolkit filled with resources to help anyone experiencing difficulty during the national lockdown. Currently PYA are not able to meet in person but the group are catching up on Teams.
If you're a young person between 11/18 and would like to be involved in Penarth Youth Action, email Kelly at email@example.com or phone 02920 701254.
